A VOB file (Video Object) is a container format contained in DVD-Video media. It contains the actual Video, Audio, Subtitle (VobSubs) and Menu contents in stream form. VOB files are encoded very much like standard MPEG-2 files.
If the extension is changed from .vob to .mpg or .mpeg, the file is still readable and continues to hold all information, although most MPEG-2-capable players don't support subtitle tracks.
In order to burn the VOB files to a DVD + or - r disc, other standard DVD-Video files are needed as well, including IFO and BUP files. The burning is easily done using software like Nero or Roxio Toast.
Conversion is easy with tools like IFO EDit and VOB Edit -we show you how in a special tutorial you can download for $2.00. It contains the free software you need and full instructions.
